This paper aims to suggest pragmatic instructions for conducting anEnglish course that focuses on speaking and listening skills through using drama as a language teaching activity. Recent research on drama in the ESL/EFL classroom has been about the benefits of drama and methods one can use, but research on techniques, activities, and methodology that is more beneficial in regards to student``s improving their language capabilities has been lacking in Korea. For this study, drama approaches and techniques were examined based up on the constructivist methodology in teaching English as a second language and researcher``s observation and participants`` journals were analyzed. With this research as a premise, a model for a drama course that might effectively enhance student``s speaking and listening skills is proposed. The suggested model proposes a blend of approaches and a variety of techniques that have been used globally among the EFL community, focusing on bonding activities for warm-up and team-building, guided activities for creating a scenario and debate and discussion.
